As an affordable option for beginning students, the Prelude CL711 clarinet combines value and performance. The small .569” complex bore gives students more resistance that helps develop a well controlled even focused mature sound with better projection at all dynamic levels. Specially designed drop forged, nickel-silver keys are durable and resistant to bending. The brushed composite body uses a denser material to provide a look, sound, and response similar to wood instruments. Prelude instruments are offered with a stylish lightweight case for easy travel.
